VIEW FROM THE TOP 




The theme of this edition of "The Andrean" is Excellence 
Awarded. It is an appropriate topic given the outstanding report 
that St. Andrew's College received from the Canadian 
Educational Standards Institute's (CESI) Visiting Committee in 
May. The primary purpose of the CESI review was to verify the 
extent to which SAC. met the ten standards for the 
accreditation of schools: Purposes and Objectives; Values, 
Discipline and Extra-curriculum; Academic Programme; School 
Organization; Personnel; School and Community; Admission 
Procedures; Governance; Corporate Structure and Finance; and 
Plant and Management. 

The committee of fifteen independent school educators from 
across Canada introduced their final report with the declaration 
that "St. Andrew's is one of Canada's great independent schools 
that is truly committed to its mission to nurture the 
development of the complete man, the well-rounded citizen." 
They were amazed that every student, parent, teacher, alumnus 
and Board member knew, when asked, the school's Mission 
Statement. Their report stressed the leadership role that the 
school has taken on the national and international stage in the 
past five years. Strong and effective governance and the 
collaborative approach taken by the Leadership Team were seen 
to be instrumental in "elevating the school to new levels of 
prominence." 

The report made repeated references to the school's "bold and 
inspiring strategic plan" and its ability to blend tradition with 
innovation. The commitment to technology, residential life, 
athletics and facilities improvements received high praise, as did 
the dedication and strong work ethic of the faculty and staff. The 
Middle School's "school-within-a-school" environment was viewed 
as both collaborative and congenial. 



Equally gratifying were the compliments directed toward the 
students. The boys' respectful tone and behaviour; their sense of 
community and brotherhood; their willingness to test their limits 
and reveal their character; their deportment in the cadet 
program, pipe band, and chapel were highlighted in various 
sections of the report. 

Most rewarding, perhaps, were two comments found in the 
report's "Values, Discipline and Extra-curriculum" section: 

There is a distinct atmosphere about the school where 
courtesy, respect, dedication, and self-discipline are core 
values of community living. 

The Visiting Committee would like to congratulate 
St. Andrew's in creating an environment that has allowed the 
boys to become true gentlemen. Their manners, both 
courteous and respectful, were indeed impressive and left us 
with a very positive feeling. 

While we are justifiably proud of the school's stellar "report card", 
we cannot rest on our laurels. No stone must be left unturned if a 
stronger foundation can be made for any of our school programs and 
activities that received less than "perfect" marks. 

To that end, the Board of Directors, Headmaster and 
Leadership Team will continue to examine areas of school 
activity that need improvement and will develop strategies to 
achieve it. 

As St. Andrew's begins its 108th year, our commitment to 
excellence, so strongly identified in the CESI report, continues. H

"ONE OF 
CANADA'S GREAT 
INDEPENDENT 
SCHOOLS... 
...MARVELLOUS" 



C. E.S.I. - the Canadian Education Standards Institute - sends a 
visiting team to each independent school once every seven years 
to determine whether the institution deserves to be accredited. 
C. E.S.I, is a regulatory body created by the independent schools 
themselves to ensure the highest standards among member schools. 
St. Andrew's is a founding member of the group. 



November of 2005 was S.A.C.'s turn again, and when the 
13-member evaluation team arrived for the intensive three-day 
visit, St. Andrew's was more than ready. Work had begun 18 months 
earlier with staff conducting its own evaluation, one that in many 
ways would be much more daunting than the real thing. 

Assistant Headmasters Courtenay Shrimpton and Kevin 
McHenry were the co-ordinators of the internal C.E.S.I. 
evaluation. Both had been on other C.E.S.I evaluation teams, 
which are comprised of faculty members and administrators from 
other independent schools, and noted that the S.A.C. response to 
the upcoming evaluation was unique. "At most schools,

a couple of staff co-ordinating preparations for the evaluation 
seem to do almost all of the work," said Courtenay Shrimpton. 
"But here, Kevin and I really were just co-ordinators." 

"We asked for volunteers to help evaluate all areas of the school 
the C.E.S.I. evaluation team would examine and we had no 
shortage of help. We had a number of teams of five or six members 
who did the legwork. We had staff who volunteered to write the 
reports, others who volunteered to edit and format it. It was a 
tremendous team effort. Of the one-thousand pages in our internal 
evaluation, Kevin and I wrote only a small fraction of them. It was 
a remarkable team effort and quite unusual as schools go." 

OVER THE COURSE OF 18 MONTHS, THE FACULTY 
SELF-EVALUATED THE SCHOOL ACCORDING TO 
THE 10 STANDARDS PUT FORWARD BY C.E.S.I.: 

- PURPOSES AND OBJECTIVES 

- VALUES, DISCIPLINE AND EXTRA-CURRICULUM 

- ACADEMIC PROGRAM 

- SCHOOL ORGANIZATION 

- PERSONNEL 

- SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY 

- ADMISSION PROCEDURES 

- GOVERNANCE 

- CORPORATE STRUCTURE AND FINANCE 

- PLANT AND MANAGEMENT 

The process was comprehensive and relentless. "We were 
finished with the internal report by June, and the evaluation 
wasn't until November," says Kevin McHenry. "We were more 
than ready." 

"Rather than create booklets that would be given to C.E.S.I. 
team members, we downloaded the whole internal report onto 
our website. Anybody could look at it and we encouraged 
everybody to look at it, from faculty and staff to parents. The 
C.E.S.I. team received their reports from the same website." 

This report is what the C.E.S.I. evaluation team would use as 
the basis of its visit. They spent almost four days at the school 
- from Sunday to Wednesday in late November, 2005 - visiting 
classes, meeting students, faculty, staff and Board members,

COMPLIMENTS 
AND CHALLENGES 

THE FOLLOWING ARE A SAMPLING OF STATEMENTS TAKEN 
FROM THE VISITING COMMITTEE REPORT TO ST. ANDREW'S 
COLLEGE BY C.E.S.I. IN NOVEMBER 2005. THEY PROVIDE 
AN EXCELLENT CROSS-SECTION OF BOTH THE NEGATIVE 
AND POSITIVE ISSUES RAISED BY THE COMMITTEE: 



"The Visiting Committee has some concerns about the facilities. 
The current tennis courts need resurfacing and the tennis court 
fencing needs to be replaced. Also, the clay track and field track 
needs to be upgraded, the lower fields by the creek need to 
be levelled and crowned. Finally, the department needs more 
storage space for equipment. " 

"The sense of duty, service to others and pride in the school 
consistently resonates from the Board Chairman, Governors, 
Headmaster, staff, students and parents. It is the same pride 
and commitment of the alumni that is especially noteworthy 
and a unique strength of St. Andrew's." 

"The Visiting Committee wondered what opportunities there 
were for boys in residence to socialize with girls. " 



"St. Andrew's is blessed with a beautiful campus and excellent 
resources and it is in this environment that we see happy 
students and optimistic staff working together. There is a distinct 
atmosphere about the school where courtesy, respect, dedication 
and self-discipline are core values of community living. "

Ladies' Guild members and others. 
They listened, observed, and collected 
information to determine how much 
the internal evaluation was reflected 
in real practice. 

Courtenay and Kevin have sat on 
C.E.S.I. evaluation teams at other schools 
and both report that it is an intense, 
whirlwind experience for all the team 
members. "It's about as tough a three days 
as you'll experience," notes Courtenay. 
"Each team member has seen the report, 
and each has his or her own assigned 
area when the team arrives at the school. 
The days are long and when it's over 
you've got reports to write." 

"Basically you visit the classes and the 
people you need to visit to address your 
assigned area. As a whole, the team tries 
to get into every teacher's classroom. 
Some teachers are surprised that after 
all the preparation they've done, a team 
member might be in and out of their class 
in a few minutes. But team members pick 



up on the overall pattern in the school 
quickly, and they know right away that a 
class is in fact another cog in the pattern 
of excellence they've seen all day." 

Notes Kevin: "If one or more team 
member is spending a lot of time in your 
area, then you have a big problem. 
Fortunately, we had no such major 
concerns." 



To say that the overall tenor of the 
final report was positive would be an 
understatement. "There were no shocking 
findings," says Kevin. "In fact, the only 
surprise was the almost embarrassingly 
positive nature of the report. There were 
some suggestions for improvements, but 
no major difficulties."

"The overall impression is that first of 

all it's a marvellous school, fully in line 

with its mission statement. Everyone here 

understands what St. Andrew's is supposed 

to be, and it is in fact achieving its mission 

fully. The Committee was very enthusiastic 

about the energy in the place, not only 

from students, but from faculty. They were 

impressed by how committed everyone is, 

from maintenance staff to the student 

body, tO faculty." courtenay shrimpton

Headmaster Ted Staunton was particularly pleased with the 
results of the evaluation. "Over the past seven years we made 
tremendous strides to address areas of possible weakness in 
the School as a whole," he notes. "We responded to hundreds 
of recommendations that came out of our own studies and 
long-term plans." 

"Still, when an external group of your peers comes in with 
the magnifying glass to point out your shortcomings for all to see, 
you're justifiably nervous. But the overall results were beyond our 
dreams. I could not have been more pleased with the evaluation 
committee's findings and report. All in all, it was a great process 
for St. Andrew's to undertake and respond to. Kevin and Courtenay 
led us through the process most capably, and the support offered 
by our faculty was nothing short of inspiring." 

Courtenay notes that recommendations might be categorized 
more as suggestions for improvement rather than any kind of 
condemnation for failure, though there were a couple of 
"motherhood" issues that he feels bear consideration. "One of 
the major things that came out was that the students are at 
their limit in terms of pace of life," he notes. "I suppose this is 
something we inherently know, but it hits home a bit harder 
when skilled people from outside of the school point it out to you." 

"So even though the students seem to want to do more and more, 
we need to be aware of the strain on them. We're accustomed to 
saying yes and being supportive when they come to us with ideas, 
but for their sake maybe we need to start saying no to some things 
we've always said yes to." 

Kevin calls the whole evaluation a very valuable process of 
school soul-searching and self-assessment. "It's a forced reflection 
you might otherwise not make time to do," he says. "The internal 
evaluation we did was tremendously beneficial. We've been able to 
address areas that might be improved by taking our own and the 
evaluation committee's recommendations back to department 
heads. Those things are now being addressed, and we'll move 
forward for seven more years until it all starts again!" 

JIM MCGILLIVRAY 



"As is the case with all student leadership programs, there are 
some areas of concern. The communication between the Middle 
School and the Upper School is one potential for improvement, 
as the Prefects felt there was minimum involvement with the 
Middle School." 

"The Visiting Committee would like to congratulate St. Andrew's 
in creating an environment that has allowed the boys to become 
true gentlemen. Their manners, both courteous and respectful, 
were indeed impressive and left us with a very positive feeling. "

"Consideration should be given to the benefits realized by 
having a communications officer overseeing the multitude 
of information leaving the School. Housed within the 
Advancement office, the same detailed process utilized for 
communication with the alumni could easily be adapted 
to the numerous communications going out to the parents." 

"St. Andrew's College does an excellent job of reporting 
students' progress to parents/guardians. The posting of 
teachers' electronic daybooks on the internet ensures that 
both students and parents are kept abreast of materials 
being covered, homework assignments, and any upcoming 
assessment." 



THE A N D RE AN | 5 



EXCELLENCE AWARDED 



Kevin McHenry, Assistant Headmaster, 
Academics and the Upper School, joined 
St. Andrew's four years ago after 12 years 
in public high schools, first as a teacher of 
business, accounting, law and computers, 
and subsequently as a Vice Principal at 
Newmarket Secondary School. Life in an 
independent school has been very much 
to his liking, largely, he says, because of 
the tremendous energy and dedication 
of the faculty and staff. 

"There is a very 
strong sense that 
we're all on the 
same page and 
working towards 
the same goals, " 
he says. "This 
makes for a 
very motivating 
environment " 

Kevin arrived at the school just as the 
province eliminated Grade 13, at a time 
when academics were ripe for an overhaul. 
It became clear very quickly that he was 
the man for the job, and since his arrival, 
St. Andrew's has seen a rebirth of its 
academic focus and direction. Failure 
rates have plummeted, student honours 
have soared, and perhaps never have the 
boys of St. Andrew's been so well prepared 
for the increasingly competitive world 
of university academics. The learning 
environment is exciting - in no small 
part due to Kevin's drive to raise the 
academic ante. He has clearly relished 
the challenge. 



ACADEMIC 
INITIATIVES 

BRING 
RESULTS f 



"I'm excited because I feel we really 
have our academic house in better order 
than ever before," says Kevin. "We're 
running a number of innovative programs 
that are not happening anywhere else, 
and we're carving out a clear academic 
niche in a very busy and active school." 

"Athletics, drama, music - with all 
these activities, academics are not always 
the most celebrated side of school life. 
Academics are not glamorous, but 
everyone knows that's why the boys 
are here. There are a number of great 
initiatives we've worked towards and 
we're seeing results." 

In June, Andrean writer Jim 
McGillivray spoke with Kevin about 
these wide-ranging initiatives and 
what they mean to today's Andreans. 

...ON BALANCE 
WITHIN ACADEMICS 

One of the most difficult things to do at a 
school like this is to create and manage the 
right balance within the academic program 
and between academics and other aspects 
of student life. The balance of priorities in 
the academic program right now is right 
where it should be. We have a strong and 
developing Advanced Placement program 
and a number of other things that are 
moving us towards equally high standards. 
It is this balance we've attained in the last 
few years that I am most proud of. 



...ON THE NEED 
FOR STRUCTURE 

Every student says, "I want to do well in 
academics," and they really mean it. But 
it wasn't always happening. We found we 
didn't have the structure in place around 
their academic lives to help them 
make that happen. The best example 
is probably the GLC - the Guided 
Learning Centre. This is a program 
whereby students who haven't finished 
assignments on schedule are required 
to attend a classroom after school where 
they are given the time and the guidance 
to complete the work. The bottom line 
for the GLC is very straightforward: if you 
don't finish a major assignment that has 
been posted to the teacher's online 
daybook seven days in advance of its due 
date, you don't participate in co-curricular 
activities. It sounds hard-line, but it's 
very fair. 

Communication is key here. When 
a student is assigned to the GLC, emails 
go out from the GLC co-ordinator to 
five people: the student, the parent, the 
advisor, the Housemaster, and the coach. 
In reality, most boys spend one or two 
days in the GLC and the assignment 
is finished. 

This program has improved the 
culture of the school academically and 
it is working tremendously well. It 
motivates them to finish work on their

own, and if they don't it gives them the structure to get it finished 
in spite of themselves. Alan Halstead, who facilitates the GLC, 
sits with them and helps them to organize and to plan their work 
and their next week. 

A by-product of this program is the information that comes out 
of it. Alan is meticulous about recording information that I can 
then study. This feedback gives me a very accurate snapshot of 
the academic year and where problem areas might be for 
students in general. 

...ON THE FOUR-YEAR CURRICULUM 

When the Ministry changed the curriculum to four-years from 
five, students, particularly at St. Andrew's found it an incredible 
challenge to get their credits while participating in everything 
else here that is important to Andrean life. The burden is 
tremendous for all high school students, to the point where 30% 
of students province-wide still take five years to finish their 30 
credits rather than four. With that in mind, we've had to develop 
programs that help students acquire credits earlier and outside of 
the traditional day. Of course the first major program developed 
for this purpose was GPP/AMR - the Cadet program credit courses 
that allow boys to earn a Grade 1 1 credit for three years' work in 
Cadets, the Pipes & Drums and the Military band between Grades 
9 and 11. This was our obvious first choice for such a course. 
The effort and time commitment were there from the boys and 
the faculty; it was just a matter of formalizing the paperwork. 
It's working superbly. 

In September 2005, we introduced a new mandatory credit 
course for all boarders. The course is called Learning Strategies 
and its focus is on the development of students' study skills, test 
taking and general academic organization. It was developed 
and is taught by the Director of Residential Life, David Galajda. 
The course has been very well received by our boarding 
students and their parents. 



"The GLC is a supervised room where students who have 
outstanding assignments or tests go, instead of after school 
extra-curricular activities, until the piece of work is complete. 
Students and teachers alike feel that it has changed the culture 
of the school by making a clear statement that "academics are 
number one," and has facilitated the tracking of students who 
are experiencing academic troubles. " 

"Overall, it appears that the opportunity to engage in critical 
thinking is provided in many classrooms at St. Andrew's 
College, but it is not evident that critical thinking is being 
taught as a coherent process within the broader curriculum." 




ATULATES ST. ANDREW 
FOR ITS COMMITMENT TO THE ARTS, AND ENCOURAGES THE 
SCHOOL TO CONTINUE TO CELEBRATE AND TO SHOWCASE 
STUDENT AND FACULTY WORK." 



"To say that students lead an active life at St. Andrew's College 
is an understatement!" El 



In Grade 8 we have introduced two Upper School credit 
courses. One is called Comprehensive Arts, which is a Grade 9 
credit course combining music, art and drama. The other is a 
Grade 9 math course, again for Grade 8 boys. These are all 
designed to help students get ahead of the game; in essence we 
have formalized work they were already doing so that they 
could earn a credit for it to reduce the pressure on them in 
Grades Hand 12. 

We have also expanded our summer school program and 
encouraged students to take a course in the summer. We had 
almost 60 of our students in S.A.C. summer school last summer, 
which is more than we have ever had. This program helps these 
boys earn credits early, increasing their chances of graduating 
with good standing after four years. 



THE ANDREAN | 7 



EXCELLENCE AWARDED 



...ON ADVANCED 
PLACEMENT INITIATIVES 

Advanced Placement - 'AP' as it is known - fits our school very 
well. AP is huge in the U.S. and is growing quickly in Canada as 
well. An AP course is our usual credit course, but with enough 
elements of a first-year university course that students can go 
straight into a second-year university course once they have it. 
It allows students to specialize and reach into university level 
material that suits their strengths and interests. We had 14 AP 
exam topics written this year. Five AP courses are stand-alone, 
some combine AP with regular course material, dividing the 
class into two sections. Next year we'll have two more stand- 
alone AP courses. These are demanding courses. Our vision is 
not to mandate anyone to take them, but to give the opportunity 
to those who are able and willing. Since 2002 we've gone from 
64 AP exams written to 123 written this year, so it's a booming 
program. The program works superbly for us, and of 37 Ontario 
and Quebec students named National AP Scholars in May 2005, 
four were St. Andrew's students. St. Andrew's ranked 3rd out of 
250 AP schools last year. Our Advanced Placement capabilities 
and success are among the top reasons people are choosing this 
school. Parents ask about it right up front. 




...ON THE 2005 ELIMINATION 
OF SATURDAY CLASSES 

This was contentious at first, but academically it has worked 
just as we had hoped. The first thing it did was to greatly reduce 
the stress level among students and staff. Of course, to make it 



feasible we increased academic time during the week. It wasn't 
a huge increase in time, but we've found that this time is far 
more useful than it was on Saturdays, when absences were 
high due to sports and family commitments. I'm sure that 
many Old Boys remember too many cancelled Saturday classes. 
Far from compromising academics, getting rid of them has 
increased academic quality time by putting it back into the 
regular school day. 

...ON MAINTAINING 
MINISTRY STANDARDS 

The Ministry of Education comes in every two years to inspect 
us. They were here in December, and I confess 1 was worried 
because so many new initiatives had been put into place since 
the last inspection. How would they feel about our 'non-traditional' 
courses such as Cadets/Music Repertoire, Learning Strategies, and 
our 'reach-ahead' Grade 9 credits, or our new S.A.C. Assessment 
and Evaluation policy? But their report was glowing. They went 
through things in great detail, and to quote them, St Andrew's is 
a "leading school." So that really reinforced the value of the work 
we've done in recent years. 

...ON THE MOVE TO LAPTOPS 

I think the key with laptops has been in finding the right 
balance and I think we've found that. The laptop is being used 
as it should be: as a great learning tool. It's like a whiteboard, 
or a Smart board, or a book, or a piece of chalk - a tool to help 
learn. That's the niche it has found. Teachers spend lots of time 
in professional development on laptops, and we've had to create 
a whole I.T committee to manage the laptop program. But the 
laptop has become a tremendous tool for us, and it keeps the 
boys and the faculty on the leading edge of where things are going. 
Through the school year, I habitually visit three different classes 
a week for 30-40 minute segments, and I never cease to be 
amazed by the uses being made with laptops by both the faculty 
and the boys.

LOOKING BACK - FROM THE REVIEW: 1974 

. 1 . R OBFRTCOUITF R 1914- P006 



These words of Browning epitomize the life and work of our 
retiring Headmaster. In his search for excellence, Dr. Coulter has 
had four distinguished careers in which his strength of character 
has been reflected. He has the discipline of a professional athlete, 
the patience of a teacher, the skill of a University Director and the 
wisdom of a Headmaster. A tribute to him at this time includes the 
hope that he and his gracious wife reach for yet another career. 

I believe his contribution to our school can be best stated by 
referring to the words of Dr. David W. Slater when, as President 
of York University, he introduced Dr. Coulter to the assembly at 
the time that University honoured him at Convocation - 

"Not content to rest on laurels that St. Andrew's College had 
already won, Dr. Coulter strengthened the traditions of the past and 
infused into the school his own passion for academic soundness. 



The record shows that 
St Andrew's College, under 
his direction, takes no second 
place as a seat of learning, 
nor would it be an exaggeration 
to say that, as the present Dean 
of Canadian Headmasters, 
Dr. Coulter's influence has been 
felt across the Independent 
Schools of the country." 



THE A N D RE AN | 10 



IN APPRECIATION 






This is the measure of the man we have all been proud to know. 
In recognition of his great contribution to St. Andrew's, the Board 
of Governors has authorized the Coulter Scholarship Fund. Thus, 
we at St. Andrew's will always remember Dr. Coulter in a tangible 
and meaningful way. May he reflect with pleasure on the great 
contribution he has made to the affairs of our school. 

GAGEH. LOVE 

Chairman of the Board 



ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE HAS HAD BUT FOUR 
HEADMASTERS IN ITS 75 YEARS OF HISTORY. 

The first, the Rev. Dr. George Bruce, organized the school, but ill 
health forced him to retire before the first year was up. 

The next, Dr. D. Bruce Macdonald, established the nature of 
the school. He saw it through three locations in Toronto and the 
move to Aurora. 

The Headmastership of Dr. Kenneth Ketchum was a period of 
consolidation with emphasis on rebuilding after the depression 
years and restructuring after World War II. 

J.R. Coulter succeeded to the Headmastership in 1958 and 
over the 16 years of his term in office has changed the school in 
many ways. First of all he has been a builder. The Ketchum 
Auditorium and the adjoining classroom wing (now Coulter 
Hall), the Great Hall together with the renovation of the old 
upper school dining hall into the Fourth House (now Sifton 
House) residence and the extensive changes in Macdonald 
House, marked his early years as Headmaster. The second major 
building programme is more recent and in the minds of most of 
us here, but we must mention the extensive enlargement of the 
Library (now Towers Library) and the construction of our 
magnificent Science facilities (now MacLaughlin Hall). Both of 
these building programmes were, to a large measure, 
accomplished as a result of the Headmaster's recognition of the 
developing physical needs of the school. 

For many headmasters, the physical improvements which I 
have just outlined, would have been a sufficient major 
accomplishment for their term of office; but Dr. Coulter has not 
been a builder of buildings only. Over the years he has attracted 
to the school a competent staff who have made a major 
contribution to the other buildings which Dr. Coulter has taken 
even more pride in than the physical one: the building of a sound 
academic programme which has grown as the needs of the 
student body has changed. 



We now turn to the man himself. What kind of person has been 
headmaster of this school for 16 years? First of all his athletic 
prowess, which was certainly a part of his reputation as he came 
to St. Andrew's, has not been the dominant factor of his life here. 
From time to time, he has helped in the coaching of teams but 
basically he has left this side of the school life to others. He has 
insisted on the maintenance of good academic standards. 

When occasion has demanded it he has taken decisive action 
even when many would have been inclined to temporize. Always 
his underlying motive has been the best needs of the school. 
Even though many have differed with him from time to time, no 
one will deny that he has always kept his interpretation of this 
idea to the foremost. 

In summation, one must recognize that S.A.C. has grown 
strongly in the last 16 years. This growth has been in numbers, 
moving from a school of approximately 225 to a school of over 
325; has been in buildings, it has been in academic standing. 
This is a fine legacy for anyone to leave to a successor.

WYSE FOLLOWS NOSE TO SUCCESS... 



Success seems to follow Jim Wyse '57, and has since his S.A.C. 
days when he was an athletic leader in football and hockey 
during an athletically strong year at the school. Trained at 
University of Toronto as a Civil Engineer, Jim earned an M.B.A. at 
Western before getting into management consulting and then 
property development as a builder of condominiums in British 
Columbia. Among other things, he built the Nancy Green Olympic 
Lodge, a 90-room hotel at Whistler. 

But what has he done recently? Well, nothing short of 
founding and building one of Canada's leading wineries. In 1993, 
Jim was ready for something different and bought 100 acres in 
B.C.'s Okanagan Valley, with a view to expanding his love of fine 
wines into a business. He added 100 more acres and began the 
Burrowing Owl Vineyard, named after an endangered species 
protected by a government reserve adjacent to his land. Within a 
few short years, Burrowing Owl wines were being feted in 
publications across North America as among Canada's best. 

"The latest Cabernet Sauvignon was advertised on our website 
at midnight on a Sunday at $30 a bottle," Jim tells BCBusiness in 
an April interview, "and by 2 pm the next day it was gone. The 
$40 Meritage was sold out the afternoon after that." Jim's 2002 
Meritage won gold medals and Best of Class honours in two 
separate California wine competitions in 2005. 

Today, Jim's land is worth at least 20 times what he paid for it, 
though he's not about to sell. With $7 million in revenues 
expected this year, the firm will spend $5 million on upgraded 
production and bed-and-breakfast facilities. The family is not left 
out of the business either, with son Stephen, daughter-in-law 
Michelle and wife Midge all intimately involved. 

When he's not running his wildly successful business, Jim 
plays piano and writes music for a swing band that performs 
regularly in such locales as Club Med in Nassau. 

Jim continues to lace up the skates and plays hockey regularly 
with Gord Robertson '54.

THIS GOOD DOCTOR IS NOT ABOUT TO SLOW DOWN 





Knowing that Dr. Malcolm "Woody" Fisher graduated from St. 
Andrew's in 1952 (with the Governor General's Medal no less), 
you might think he'd be well into retirement by now. In truth, at 
a point when many people would be easing into a life of leisure, 
Woody, after 25 years of full-time academia with the University of 
Toronto, was opening the Upper Canada Lower Bowel Clinic in 
downtown Toronto. That was 1994, and the septuagenarian 
Doctor still puts in four full days a week, seeing from 80-100 
patients as an "Arcologist" (anus/rectum/colon specialist). Why 
does he do this? "This is incredibly rewarding work," he says. "If 
there are any downsides, they come from government and 
professional bureaucracy, not from the work. I can't imagine 
doing anything more gratifying." 

Environmental issues also play a big role in Woody's life, 
especially since a trip to Costa Rica resulted in his buying 300 
acres of threatened rainforest and donating it in 1998 to York 
University. The land remains pristine and York has used it for 
field studies to help graduate more than 20 students with their 
Master of Environmental Studies. Woody and his cousins have 
also protected a family homestead in Muskoka. This rare and 
unique wetlands property will also soon belong to York 
University, with whom Woody claims a "wonderful and rewarding 
association" since he first met with them to offer the Costa 
Rican land. 

Woody spends less time than he would like at his "Oceat" 
island in Georgian Bay, with his three children (a surgeon at the 
Hospital for Sick Children, a science teacher at St. Michael's 
University School in Victoria, B.C., and a bond trader turned 
mother) and seven grandchildren. 

Oh, and did we mention he founded the Canadian Liver 
Foundation and the Environment Protection Laboratories? He is 
also very into wine as a Certified Sommelier, teacher 
(Vintegriteach) and writer (Vinsider Report).

CELEBRATING THE LEGACY OF ROGER NEILSON 






Marshall Starkman '89 returned to SAC. this past summer, 
albeit not in an academic role. Marshall is the Director of Roger 
Neilson's Hockey, a not-for-profit hockey camp and coaching 
clinic that celebrated 30 years of success by making the St. 
Andrew's campus the camp's home base for six weeks in July and 
August. 

The camp hosts 150 boys and girls per week for an intense 
and enjoyable program of on and off-ice activities, all geared 
toward good health, team-building and hockey excellence. 
Marshall attended the camp as an aspiring goaltender many 
years ago, but he first became involved as an instructor in 1992 
when S.A.C. hockey coach Al Dunford introduced him to Roger 
Neilson. His role grew as the years passed and he came to know 
Roger, a mentor for whom he had tremendous respect. "Knowing 
Roger Neilson as a friend is something that changes your life," he 
says. "Our programs reflect his meticulous attention to detail, his 
progressive thinking, and his passion for excellence. But they 
also reflect what I consider Roger's greatest legacies: his 
generosity and down-to-earth caring, selfless nature." Neilson 
died in 2003 after a long and courageous fight against cancer. 

Marshall currently runs the camp full-time out of a Stouffville 
office, continuing his lifetime hockey commitment that was 
interrupted only for a few years in the mid-1990s when he 
followed his Ryerson Bachelor of Applied Arts degree into the 
film industry. Even then he was playing or helping out with 
Junior teams like the Lindsay Muskies (owned by Roger) and 
intermittently with the S.A.C. varsity team. Last season, he was 
the Director of Hockey Operations for the Stouffville Spirit of the 
Ontario Provincial Junior 'A Hockey League (OPJHL), guiding 
them to their first division and conference titles in team history.

GETTING IT RIGHT AT THE TOP 




Ever worked for a dysfunctional company? Peter Bedard '83 was 

fortunate enough to work for several - fortunate because it has 
helped him find his niche. Peter established People First as a 
part-time consulting business in 1999, but has "gone legit" since 
bringing on a partner and incorporating in the last four years. 
Peter's clients are companies that once were small, but are 
having trouble managing growth, largely due to personnel issues. 
"We help people who may have started out building a product, 
but are now building a company," he says. "Very often, managing 
people is not their area of expertise. They are frustrated and they 
know they need help. They are pretty receptive to what we try to 
do, which is basically hold a mirror up to their management style 
and make sure it aligns with the company's values." Peter says he 
finds "almost 100%" of the time that problems start at the top 
with the C.E.O. His experience with various firms run by 
"extreme" personalities throughout the 1990s to the present have 
helped hone his consulting skills. Today his clients include large 
land developers, a university and a number of engineering firms. 

Peter is part of the stalwart-S.A.C. Bedard family. His three 
brothers also attended the School and their father Bob served as 
Headmaster from 1981-1997. Peter went on to receive a B.A. from 
the University of Toronto and an M.B.A. from the Schulich School 
of Business at York University, where he has taught a course on 
Organizational Behaviour for the past seven years. 

Peter is married to Jane Kravchenko, who taught at SAC. 
until the couple had the first of their three sons in 1998. They 
moved back to Aurora in August after a stint in Toronto, and 
Jane is back helping out at the School as a tutor. True to the 
Bedard family tradition, Peter still plays tennis competitively; as 
do his brothers and father.

G. Kingsley Ward presents the Colonel Tilston Awards to honour the 
students who, in the opinion of the faculty, have set the best example 
in their class for effort, persistency and tenacity in their studies and in 
all other school activities. Upper school honourees were (l-r) Alex Mann

Chairman of the Board of Directors Jeff Chisholm presents the Middle 
School Colonel Tilston Awards (l-r) Sam Roberts-Aasen '11, Borna 
Kalantar '12 and Jordan Slaman '10. 



Welcome to the 107th edition of Prize Day at St. Andrew's College. 
Regardless of distance traveled, either from across Yonge Street or 
from distant countries, it is wonderful to have you with us at this, 
the last formal event of the year. Our diverse, international student 
population is one of the unique features of St. Andrew's College - 
one that truly enriches our community. 



It is nice to be under the "big top" again. 
Do you remember the blue and white tent 
with the holes in it - we got UCC to buy it! 
I knew we'd get the last laugh. 

Every school year has its distinguishing 
characteristics. As Mr. Chisholm 
mentioned, CESI's visit was a major 
preoccupation. Every single member of 
the Board, faculty, staff, and Ladies' Guild 
Executive were involved to some degree. 
Thank you to all of these groups for their 
openness to the Visiting Committee. 
I think it is appropriate in this setting to 
also thank you, the parents, for investing 
your hard-earned dollars in the education 
of your son at S.A.C. The impressive 
report from CESI should confirm the fact 
that you made the right choice of school. 
It also gives the Board and administration 
confidence that changes we have made 



over the past nine years have made for a 
better school for the boys. Over the 
summer, we will either mail, email, or 
post on our website a copy of the report. 

Another distinctive element of this 
school year was extraordinary acts of 
courage by our students. 

"Courage" is often defined as "that quality 
of mind or spirit enabling one to meet 
danger or opposition with fearlessness". 

At St. Andrew's, we recognize one 
student per grade who, in the opinion of 
the faculty, has set the best example for 
effort, persistency and tenacity in their 
studies and other school activities. They 
displayed these characteristics under 
adverse conditions and exhibited courage 
under fire. Five boys, instead of four, will 
receive the Colonel Frederick A. Tilston 
award, Colonel Tilston won the Victoria

a fractured pelvis

collapsed bladder 
and very aggravated

25 pounds. On March 1st, he came to the 
school in a wheelchair to be part of the 
ski team's photo. At the end of March he 
participated in the S.A.C. trip to the 
United Nations in New York, and in May 
he insisted on leading his platoon in the 
Church Parade and cadet inspections. 
He also attended several cricket 
practices and matches in support of the 
team, but his injuries were still too 
severe to participate. 

Persistency and tenacity under adverse 
conditions - Matthew Eaton-Kent. 

The second Grade 12 Colonel Tilston 
award winner has already been 
recognized by the mayor and Town of 
Markham for his "quick and responsible 
actions and strength of character 
protecting his parents in time of crisis". 
On April 13th 
at 4:30 a.m., two 
intruders 
brandishing guns 
entered this boy's 
house while he and 
his parents slept. 
They proceeded to 
his parents' 
bedroom where they 
awakened the 
couple at gun point. 
Hearing his mother's 
screams, and 
unfamiliar voices, 
he called '911' from 
his cell phone. For 



over 40 minutes, he kept the police 
apprised of the whereabouts of the 
intruders. 

Without his calm delivery of 
information to the police, loss of life may 
have resulted. When several police 
detachments surrounded the house, the 
intruders attempted a foolhardy escape in 
the family vehicle and one of them was 
fatally wounded. 

Colonel Tilston would be very proud of 
the actions of Graham Thompson. 

GRADUATING CLASS HIGHLIGHTS 
& OTHER SCHOOL HIGHLIGHTS 

This is a day to recognize exceptional 
achievements of boys in all grades, but in 
particular the Graduating Class. I'd like 
to focus on this group of fine young men 
for a few minutes. 

Fifty-three percent of the class of 97 
boys graduate as Ontario Scholars and 
the average number of university 
acceptances per student is 4. 

The students in the class have been 
offered over $500,000 in scholarships. 
Some of the more notable ones include: 
Kevin Lee from Ohio Wesleyan University 
(he's decided on accepting the Diversity 
Scholarship at Dickinson); Karl 
McCartney - prestigious athletic 
scholarship to Wilfrid Laurier; Jun Young 
Lee from St. Joseph's University; and 
Gordon Lee from Rensselaer Polytechnic 
Institute, but he's going to UPenn; Murray 
Kay, Tyler Munro and James Porter from 
Carleton but they have chosen McMaster, 
Western and Queen's instead; Darryl Shen 
from Queen's, but he has opted for 
Waterloo. Arthur Wong stayed loyal to 
Queen's after their offer of a significant 
scholarship; and Kiko Halaliku rejected a 
$20,000 offer from UBC to attend Guelph. 
(A very persuasive Guelph football coach, 
I suspect). 

Other boys in the class will be 
attending Cornell, Brown, Boston College, 
Colgate, Carnegie-Mellon, Tufts, NYU, 
USC, Michigan, Rhode Island School of 
Design, Edinburgh, London School of 
Economics, University of Manchester, St. 
Andrew's and Warwick.

difference. We will miss Denny's constant 
smile and sense of humour. Happy 
retirement in La Belle province.

ANNUAL REPORT 2006 






Our beautiful \y0e/noruil 




are/ 




wu^tn&neia/w 
restored uon& on/ tofa 



Earlier this year, the Region of York completed the installation of our new actuated traffic lights which will ensure a much safer 
entrance for all. There is no doubt we have seen the advantages to having these lights grace our front gates. 

As you approach the top of the drive you will see that the restoration of the Mac House Triangle was completed this past summer. 
Roads have been repaired and widened, much needed infrastructure was added and the final landscaping was completed. 

We look forward to having you visit. 



A special thanks to the Andrean families who ensured 
St. Andrew's Memorial Gates Project was a great success.

SPECIAL PROJECT for the year ended June 30, 2006 




We had the unique opportunity this 
year to acquire a dedicated locker 
room at the Aurora Community Centre 
for our Saints hockey team. The only 
requirement was that we make 
improvements to the room - and we 
did just that. With plenty of research 
provided by our Athletic Director, Greg 
Reid, a custom design was drawn up 
for individual lockers and 
improvements to be made to the 
shower facilities. The upgrade also 



and award winning teams. We could 
not have completed this project 
without the financial support of 
Saints, past and present, and their 
families. We are grateful to the 
following Andreans who made this 
project possible by "purchasing" a 
locker. They have been recognized 
with plaques on the lockers in the 
Saints new home. 



We could not have completed 
this project without the

allowed us to incorporate elements 
such as whiteboards and video

IFTS OF SEC 



HE? 



In the Spring of 2006, the Canadian Government announced a 
new budget which provides an exciting, tax-saving opportunity 
for donors. Effective May 2006, there is no longer any capital 
gains tax on gifts of publicly-traded shares, bonds, mutual fund 
units and employee stock options donated to registered charities. 

Gifts of publicly-traded securities have become an increasingly 
popular way of supporting S.A.C. and we are pleased that you will 
receive even greater tax benefits for your generous support. 

To illustrate: You purchase shares at a price of $10,000 and 
the fair market value of the stock has risen to $15,000. When you 
donate the stock to S.A.C., the Foundation will issue you a tax 
receipt in the amount of $15,000. You will no longer be required 



to pay tax on the $5,000 gain. Previously, 25% of the gain would 
have been taxable. 

We hope this exciting news will encourage you to consider 
making a gift of securities to help provide unique educational 
opportunities for the students of St. Andrew's. Such a gift could 
be part of your annual contribution, support for a capital 
building project, or perhaps a family endowed fund. 

Making a gift this way is easy. Please consult your tax advisor 
or call the Advancement Office if you are considering this vehicle 
to support the school.

REUNION 
1956-1957 



REMARKS TO THE CADET CORPS 
MAY 6, 2006, BY THE LIEUTENANT 
GOVERNOR OF NEWFOUNDLAND 
AND LABRADOR, THE HONOURABLE 
EDWARD ROBERTS, CLASS OF 1957 




THE ANDREAN | 32 



S.A.C. ASSOCIATION NEWS 



Forty-nine years ago, almost to the day, I stood on this Quad as a 
member of the St. Andrew's College Highland Cadet Corps. It 
never crossed my mind as I marched and counter-marched that 
afternoon that I might some day be the Reviewing Officer. And I 
suspect that my comrades in the ranks - and Aubrey Holmes, our 
chief instructor - would have thought me a most unlikely prospect 
to do so. Thank you for asking me to be with you today. 1 consider 
it a great honour. And I assure you that it is a very great pleasure. 

1 was a member of #2 Platoon, commanded by my friend 
and classmate Noel Roberts, known officially in those days as 
Roberts Primus. We were both in the Upper Sixth that year, but 
he was the older of the pair and thus Roberts Primus. I became 




Roberts Secondus. 

Noel died four years ago, one of the three from our Graduating 
Class and the eight from the Class of 1957 who have passed on. 
We're celebrating our 50 year reunion. There were only 31 of us 
in the Upper Sixth that year, and so we've combined forces this 
weekend with 1956 so that there are enough of us to make a 
respectable showing. Thirty-two of us are here today, 19 from 
my year and 13 from the Class of 1956. We took dinner together 
last night. We had a wonderful evening, beginning of course with 
the grace that ends "per Jesum Christum Dominum Nostrum". I 
never did learn all of the words, but those five words were the ones 
that counted, because they came just before the meal was served! 

"I've never seen a better 
performance by any cadet corps 
or military unit than that carried 
out here today — There are 455 
Army cadet units in Canada 
today. Most are much younger. 
Only 11 of them are older. 
None is better. " 

As a Lieutenant Governor, and as the Honorary Colonel of the 
Royal Newfoundland Regiment, I am often invited to parades 
and other military events, and I act as the Reviewing Officer 
at several Annual Ceremonial Reviews each year - that's a new 
name for Inspections, in the jargon. They are always well done, 
and often very well done. But I must begin by telling you that 
I've never seen a better performance by any cadet corps or military 
unit than that carried out here today by Cadet Lieutenant Colonel 
Simpson and the other officers and cadets on parade, led by what 
is beyond argument the finest student Pipes and Drums Band 
anywhere. I congratulate every member of the Corps, from the 
Commanding Officer to the most junior private, on their 
accomplishments. You have every right to be proud of yourselves 
today. This Corps, as we know, is 101 years old. There are 455 
Army cadet units in Canada today. Most are much younger. Only 
1 1 of them are older. None is better. 

I shall speak in a moment or two about my own connection 
with the School, but first let me remind you that young 
Newfoundlanders have been coming to St. Andrews from almost 
its very beginning. I am told there are four here this year. Perhaps 
the highwater mark came early in 1972, when Andreans made up 
a full 10% of the Members of Newfoundland's House of Assembly,

S.A.C. ASSOCIATION NEWS 




You are a credit to yourselves, 
you are a credit to your families, 
and you are a credit to your 
School - to our School. 

our Legislature. Four of us - James Chalker, John Crosbie, Frank 
Moores and myself - wore the Old Boy's tie. Frank and I - like the 
elephant and the mouse - shared leadership positions: he was 
Premier and I led the Opposition. 

Notwithstanding those links, I was startled - when I began to 
prepare these notes - to realize that this is only the third time I 
have been back to the School since I left in June 1957. But I can 
tell you that although I've only been here twice in half a century, 
there hasn't been a day in those years that the School wasn't with 
me. Had anybody told us 50 years ago that St. Andrew's would 
shape our lives, I would have scoffed at the notion - and every one 
of my classmates would have done so, too. But I can tell you that 
it did, and it does. My years here have had a lasting effect - and 
it has been a beneficial one, I hasten to add. 

It would be foolish of me to tell you that my military career as a 
member of the Cadet Corps was noteworthy. Promotion in those 
days was a consequence of competition: I hope it still is, because it 
should be. I rose to the exalted rank of Corporal in the fall of 1956, 
my last year at the School. I might have made Sergeant, if only 1 
hadn't ordered the platoon 1 was guiding through a drill exercise to 
"Left Wheel" instead of telling them to make a "Right Wheel". My 



friends and classmates heeded the order, and marched straight into 
the wall of the gym in Dunlap Hall (now the Wirth Art Centre). 
Always willing to oblige and to help a comrade in need, they didn't 
even mark time: they just piled atop each other. 

By one means or another, we all learned much at St. Andrews. 
Some of us did well academically, some excelled in sports and 
others learned to lead by becoming officers in the Cadets. Some 
of the knowledge we gained was tested by examinations, but most 
of it has been tested by our lives throughout the years. Those were 
the most valuable lessons of all in my judgement. 

- We learned to accept responsibility for our own actions: we 
answered "adsum" when our name was called. The phrase - 
Toots Garstang, who took on the Herculean task of teaching us 
Latin - means "I am here". I'm told you no longer use it - but 
I'm sure you still answer for your deeds - or your misdeeds. 

- We learned that one must know how to take orders before one 
is fit to give them. 

- We learned the need for discipline, and particularly for self 
discipline - perhaps the most valuable of all qualities. 

- We learned the value of comradeship, and the skills of living 
together, many of us far away from home. 

- And we learned to stand up for ourselves. The magnificent 
prose of the King James Version still resonates: "Watch ye, 
stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. Let all 
your things be done with charity". It's a mighty watch-word. 

I'm passionately interested in the history of Newfoundland and 
Labrador. Soldiers and sailors are an important part of that

history, and since coming to Government House I've learned a 
great deal about the role they have played in our past. I cherish 
my appointment as Honorary Colonel of the Royal Newfoundland 
Regiment, a military formation which celebrated its 211th birthday 
ten days ago with a church service and a parade to commemorate 
the Gallipoli campaign. The Newfoundlanders, as a regiment in the 
British Army, were the only North American unit to fight there, 
alongside the Australians and the New Zealanders of the famed 
ANZAC Corps and several British regiments. The Newfoundlanders 
won imperishable glory on the 1st of July 1916, the first day of the 
Battle of the Somme, at a small French hamlet named Beaumont 
Hamel. Eight hundred of them attacked that morning: 68 were 
able to answer the roll call the next day. Two months later, the 
Newfoundlanders were back in the front line, in the Ypres Salient. 
Their neighbours were Canadians. That was the first time soldiers 
from the two Dominions fought side-by-side since the Royal 
Newfoundland Regiment of 



I've learned, too, that Canada's Armed Forces are a superb group 
of professional, dedicated men and women. They deserve the 
support of every one of us. And I am happy to be able to say that 
more and more Canadians are standing up to say so. Most of you 
on parade today will choose careers other than the Armed 
Forces. But I say to those who will "follow the Colours" that it is 
an honourable way to live one's life, and to serve your fellow 
Canadians. 

Thank you again for giving me the honour of being with you 
today. There's no military performance as glorious as that of a 
Highland Regiment marching well, with pipes playing and drums 
beating. You've added lustre to the laurels won by all the young 
men who have marched in the ranks of this Corps over its century- 
long history. You are a credit to yourselves, you are a credit to your 
families, and you are a credit to your School - to our School.

St. Andrew's College hosted another successful Middle School 
Arts Day on May 9th, exposing students in Grades 6, 7 and 8 to 
an impressive array of talented artists. 

Fifteen artists from around Ontario spent the day at St. 
Andrew's sharing their outstanding expertise in their particular 
mediums. Each student chose different workshops to attend 
throughout the day, and all were taught new and exciting 
techniques and ideas. 

We were fortunate to have 
three Old Boys attend, who are 
part of a group of artists called 
drawnonward 

http://www.drawnonward.com. 
These artists became friends 
while at St. Andrew's College in 

the 80's, where they discovered their common love for landscape 
painting. Gord Kemp's workshop was titled "Land Art and Earth 
Works". Kemp '88 enjoys creating sculptures using natural 
materials found outdoors. He has been inspired by Britain's 
naturalist sculptor, Andy Goldsworthy, who he introduced to the 
students through a documentary. Gord took the students outside 
and taught them how to build structures using natural organic 



materials. These sculptures were photographed ancWB^^^ 
enjoyed by all. Paul Mantrop '87 enjoys working outdoors as 
well. He demonstrated to the students his love of art and his 
developed skills in landscape painting. His paintings are 
compelling and dynamic and his approach to his work was 
powerfully displayed to the students. Chris Roberts' '87 
approach to painting was very different than that of his friends. 
His session was titled "Abstract Expressionism", and left the

students feeling free about their art and certainly left the art 
room in quite a mess! The students created large pieces of art 
using acrylic paints and even used their hands and feet. The 
students were excited to see fellow Andreans pursuing their love 
of art as a career. 

Other artists included Raine Davis who demonstrated how to 
create sculptural wind chimes made out of wire and found

objects. Katherine Laco exposed the students to three 
dimensional sculptures using clay. The Monster Factory was 
quite popular, where the students designed and created plush 
monsters. These funky artists posted the event on their blog: 
http://www.monsterfactory.blogspot.com and were excited 
about their first workshop. 

Other two dimensional artists were Elizabeth Gibson 
(pastels), Susan Johnston (Extreme Drawing), Merv Richardson 
(watercolours), John Pryce (oils), and Nancy Wilson (life 
drawing). The Messy Hands school bus spent the day in the 
Rogers Hall parking lot where 3D paintings were produced. 
Beautiful masterpieces were created in Ceramics with artist 
Michele Greenwood-Clayton and in the Ukrainian eggs class with 



Paula Doyle. Another favourite workSBp was Don Chretien 
demonstrating his advanced Photoshop skills. Overall, all 
sessions were hands-on, fun and exciting for everyone. A big 
thank you goes to all artists for sharing their talents once again 
on this remarkable day. 

Many grandparents joined us in the afternoon for the first 
Grandparent's Day at St. Andrew's College. They toured the 
classrooms, met the artists and watched their grandsons ere 
amazing works of art. Many thanks to Ted and Jane Staunton 
who closed the day with a beautiful tea for all of the 
grandparents and artists in their home.

FROM THE EDITOR 




The members of the Regiment known as 
The First Five Hundred were each given 
a tiny Bible at St. Andrew's Church in 
St. John's on October 4, 1914. 
Inscribed in it are the words: "Watch 
ye, stand fast in the faith, quit ye like 
men, be strong. " 

I am in a reflective mood. Writing about the recent death of Bob 
Coulter, I am thinking about how much an agent of change he 
was in his 16 years at the helm of St. Andrew's. He was my 
Headmaster as we both started our careers at St. Andrew's in 
1958. So as a student, I witnessed firsthand the tremendous 
re-building of the College in 1962, which is described in the late 
Lloyd MacPherson's tribute reprinted from the 1974 Review in 
this issue. One man, driven with a passion for change and 
improvement can make a huge difference in the lives of many. 
Certainly Bob Coulter did that at St. Andrew's. 

He was born in 1914, the year the Great War, the "war to end 
all wars" started. In late June of this year, Gail and I went to 
northern France to attend the commemoration of the sacrifice 
made by the Royal Newfoundland Regiment in that war. We 
were with a large group of Newfoundlanders, and we visited the 
major battlegrounds where the Regiment fought - all of them, 
now, a part of the beautiful French countryside. The multi- 
layers of crops in farmers' fields are an endless green ocean 
rippling in the breeze, ever changing, ever the same. And on the 
side of the roadways, every few kilometers, are the cemeteries. 
At the Somme, from July to November 1916, a million men died 
advancing twelve kilometers. Flowers mark the immaculate 
graves of men from every corner of the globe. Many of the 
smaller cemeteries lie in the middle of farmers' fields. Others 
run wide into the distance as far as the eye can see. We were 
left speechless. ■ 

July 1st this year was the 90th anniversary of the Battle of 
Beaumont Hamel. It was the first day of the battle of the Somme. 
Everything that could go wrong, did. The Royal Newfoundland 



Regiment, among the first attackers, numbered 801 men. Those 
able bodied enough to answer the roll call the next morning 
numbered 68. All the others were killed, or wounded, or missing. 

It was, and remains, the greatest tragedy in the history of 
Newfoundland. The loss to our island people hit every cove and 
inlet, every town and city. It wiped out a whole generation of our 
brightest and best young men. They had signed up for what they 
called the great adventure, sure they would be home for Christmas. 

Three of them were my uncles: Hubert died that day and is 
buried at Beaumont Hamel, aged 25. Arthur was wounded and 
then killed the next year just down the road at Cambrai, aged 32. 
Ralph was wounded there, and at subsequent battles, lived 
through the four years and returned home in 1918. Their sister, 
Elsie, was an ambulance driver behind the lines. 

July 1st of course is Canada Day, but for Newfoundlanders it is 
also, and always, Memorial Day. We are grateful that this year, for 
the first time, there was a commemorative ceremony on 
Parliament Hill to remember Beaumont Hamel. 

In France, six Andreans were among the Newfoundland 
delegation. We were led by Lieutenant Governor Edward Roberts '57 
who is also Honorary Colonel of the Regiment; his son-in-law Ivan 
Lavrence '87; The Hon John Crosbie '49, Chancellor of Memorial 
University; Tom Munn '50; The Rev. Ian Wishart '48, a former Padre 
of the Regiment; and myself. It was, to put it mildly, an unforgettably 
emotional experience. All of us had relatives or family friends or 
both, who died in that place on that day or elsewhere in that war. 
And I therefore wondered whether something so personal was a 
reasonable subject for a column like this. 

Two thoughts occurred to me. First, think what the world lost 
because of those millions of deaths and what many of them might 
have accomplished had they been spared. Bob Coulter lived to do 
what he did because he didn't die as a young man in a muddy 
war somewhere. Second, think what the world gained. Our 
freedoms rest on their sacrifice and that of millions more, in 
other wars, in other lands, right up to the present day.
